EQB800 is the latest model in Casio’s EDIFICE collection. It’s described as a high-performance timepiece inspired by motor racing.
EQB800 features Casio’s new Time Attack Recording which enables the wearer to track their racing times, record target times as well as see a list of their best lap times through a helpful list and graph display. The watch features a blue stainless-steel bezel set off by the imposing index and hands which display the watch’s smartphone connection status and battery level. A dual-coil motor drives the retrograde hand movements that express speed like a tachometer while also displaying stopwatch measurement values in 1/20-second increments.
Smart Phone Link
The EQB800 can be paired with a smart phone with the push of a button through Casio’s Mobile Link Technology. By downloading the CASIO WATCH+ app and connecting to a compatible smartphone via Bluetooth® SMART, the watch can access the correct time in its current location and for up to 300 cities worldwide, updating with the latest time zone and Daylight Saving Time information. It also automatically syncs via phone, to a time server on the internet four times a day or it can be synced by a one-push reset to ensure ultimate accuracy.
Tough Solar Power
The EQB800 features Casio’s Tough Solar Power, which consists of a solar panel system that converts light to electricity and eliminates the need for battery changes. It can even be charged in low or fluorescent light. After a full-charge and without further exposure to light, the timepiece has a battery life of around five months. A power save feature conserves energy by enabling the watch to power down when not exposed to light, which can extend the battery life to nearly two years.
Water resistant up to 100 meters the EQB800 includes a stopwatch, daily alarm, lap memory, Phone Finder, and more. The watch will be available throughout the States in September retailing at $350 at select jewelry and watch retailers, G-SHOCK Soho Store as well as ShopCasio.
